My 4 year old granddaughter loved the book the first time she listened to it. It has the 'read to me' feature and sometimes she just likes to listen to the book herself. She laughed and laughed when the story was over.
What's a Mom to do with a daughter like Ella? Most youngsters probably have a tad of stubbornness in them, but surely not as much as Ella! To compound the stubborn streak Ella simply will not, absolutely refuses to brush her hair (which needs it badly!). We read," Ella Kazoo will not brush her hair. She hides in the cupboard and under the stair. She roars at her mom like a big growly bear. She whines and she moans and she howls in despair." Plainly Mom is facing quite a challenge. However, that challenge turns into a bit of an emergency when one morning Ella's tresses take on a life of their own, slipping into her dresses, creeping around a chair, even going down the stairs, threatening to cover everything. Youngsters will enjoy the solution to the hair-raising problems and the transformation in Ella. Told in lilting rhyme this story is fun to read or for young ones to hear. Ink and watercolor illustrations by Jennifer Plecas will bring "ohs" and smiles. - Gail Cooke
